The Rise of Hybrid Practice
Creative Institutional Design as Arts Entrepreneurship
Keywords:hybrid practice, institutional entrepreneurship, arts entrepreneurship, non-profit, B corporation, public benefit corporation
This paper redefines hybrid practice as a form of creative institutional design rooted in the problems of dealing with multiple forms of value, an area in which the arts offer pioneering cases for general theory-building around external amalgamation of existing legal forms, internal design within hybrid legal forms, and field-building across communities and economic systems. Informed by, but distinct from, implicitly neoliberal and social-impact literatures on institutional entrepreneurship, hybridity, and agency, this framework extends theories of effectuation to argue for a view of arts entrepreneurship as a laboratory for complex problem-solving both within and well beyond the arts.
